Well I finally took the firewall plunge and installed one last night. Someone had given me a boxed version of Blackice Pc Protection and I installed it and updated it.No problems so far, loads up quick and fairly light on resources. Up until now I had been using the built in firewall that came with WinXP. I had done a few scans online and all ports always showed up as stealthed. With blackice enabled and WinXP firewall disabled ports 80 and 113 show up as closed but not stealthed.Anyway no big deal I found out how to stealth this ports. My question is what do you guys think of Blackice? I did some searching around and like most software some say it's better than a traditional firewall because of its IDS, others say it's not secure enough.As I am not that savvy with firewalls I want to hear what the experts on this forum have to say, keep it or get something else?
